Too bad, I wanted to see that one. I guess the first film that Bob Hope and Paulette Goddard made The Cat and Canary isn't P.D. either.

You're not missing much. 'The Canary Murder Case' is a stinker, really. 'The Cat and the Canary' is really good, though. I don't think it's PD either.

Yes. "Cat and the Canary" is both a fantastic and copyright film. And for our added viewing pleasure its the subject of a long unresolved legal hassle that means it will never be officially re-released in the US.

What about the 1927 Universal Pictures original "The Cat and the Canary?" (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0017739/) I could upload this one if it is PD.

Yes that version is PD. As with all silents it could contain a copyright soundtrack depending on the version.
